International Women’s Day 2016

 

In the southwestern Colombian port city of Tumaco, women run a street-side restaurant specializing in fried fish. Women continue to earn less, have fewer assets, and are largely concentrated in vulnerable and low-paying activities. Seventy-five per cent of women’s employment in developing regions is informal and unprotected.

Women and girls contribute every day to their families and the world. Celebrate the women and girls in your world. Show your appreciation. Help them succeed, help them excel in all areas of their lives. You can make a difference in the progress toward dignity and parity on March 8, 2016, and every day: http://www.internationalwomensday.com/
